Message From The Premier 

On behalf of the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, I take this opportunity to extend congratulations and best wishes to Team Newfoundland and Labrador as they prepare to compete in the upcoming 2011 Canada Winter Games, to be held February 11-27 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. 

I commend all the athletes, coaches, managers and mission staff for their dedication and commitment to sport excellence. Your participation in the Canada Games is both an honour and an outstanding achievement that makes all Newfoundlanders and Labradorians proud as you represent our province on the national stage. I commend every team member for their hard work and perseverance. I would also like to sincerely thank the mission staff and volunteers. Each one of you plays a crucial role in supporting our athletes as they compete amongst the country’s best. 

As Halifax gets set to host the largest sporting event ever held in that city’s history, I have no doubt the 2011 Canada Winter Games will be an exciting and memorable experience for each of you. Good luck Team Newfoundland and Labrador!
